Reader comments on road memorial
After seeing all the news stories in this publication and on local news
stations, I felt the strong need to comment on the Brandon Blount
I cannot fathom what possessed the complainants' actions. I
thought this community was special, a little more close-knit and caring than
most; evidently I am sadly mistaken.
I knew Brandon, and pass the memorial several times each week. I
have yet to see any traffic problem, or even anyone there in the past two years,
so what is there to complain about? I have racked my brain and all I can come
up with is that the people complaining simply are very cold-hearted and
have nothing better to do with their time.
I challenge them to come up with a better reason and respond. True,
it may be misuse of county land, but the millions of yard sale signs each
week that are left up also must be, and they truly are an eyesore.
I do not think the beautiful flowers left at the memorial
offend anyone's eyes. To me, it is a wonderful statement to how much this
family loved their son and brother, and a reminder to our upcoming young
drivers to slow down.
To those of you who complained enough to take this away from
the Blount's, I hope you are proud of yourselves. Perhaps a hobby to fill idle
time would help.
